Unfinished Business and Remarriage

Some evidence of remarriage couples shows that unfinished business of the past (financial debt and settlements, fear of failure once again in relationship and unresolved hurts from the past) is part of the top problematic concerns of couples (research on 50,000 couples who took part in PREPARE-MC – marriage with children-stepfamilies). Being aware of and sharing these obstacles is not the same as finding ways to resolve them. The fear itself can cause some couples to avoid the unfinished business or feel hopeless about finding any resolution. If you have these issues as part of your relationship, a professional can help you on your way before you dig in and experience a rift in your newly formed attachment.

“The block of granite, which is an obstacle on the path of the weak, becomes a stepping-stone on the path of the strong.” Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)
